built environment." one key issue: how to protect the new york subway system which experienced the worst damage in it's 108 year history. many stations remain submerged under several feet of water even as limited operations are expected to resume tomorrow. but infrastructure renovations are not always a cle fix. mayor michael bloomberg, who has taken a number of steps to make new york a greener city, has not yet proposed a major infrastructure change that might deal with rising water levels, for example. but he warned again today that citizens and policymakers need to take climate change predictions seriously. >> it's not the sort of thing that you can ever say for sure but the consequences of making a mistake in either direction are pretty severe and i think what we have to do is learn from this and protect our infrastructure to the extent possible. e btom ne iwe've lost some people, we have to make sure we help their families and pray for them. we have to at the same time ensure that we go forward here and keep the city going. >> suarez: part of the growing problem: new york's coastal

your portfolio and making sure you're in sthooks can outperform in a rising interest rate environment-- which is another thing we're worried about-- longer term makes some sense. >> tom: so rising interest rate environment, possibly higher inflation, higher taxes. not exactly the most shiny of forecasts for investors. >> well, there is something you can do about it. you can avoid that tax drag by maximizing your investments in qualified plans. you can keep up with modest inflation by making sure you have your asset allocation mix right. inflation really picks the pocket of the bond investor, but dividend paying stocks and dividends of the markets can keep up with a modestly rising inflation environment. we have seen dividend increases some in the s & p this year and we have seen it as sigh sign of confidence in the management and we think they will put the cash to work once the uncertainty of the election is out. >> energy is one of the stowks like, traditionally a dividend area. but the price of energy stocks has gotten hit lately. >> it has. sectors underperformed but the balance sh
